It was an emotional performance that almost seem like a final as Kingdom left everything he’s got vocally on the stage. Judges rained in whole lots of compliments as Nigerian pop diva and judge, Sheyi Shay states categorically clear that “I won’ be surprised if you win this whole thing”. She alerted Kindom in the strongest terms.
